The oldest of our clan.
This philosopher son of ours
is headed back to school for his Masters this August.
After graduation he took the year off to: take the GRE, to apply to colleges, to work, to rest. The year before while he was away was rough on him as he studied a 1000 miles away from home, and worried too much about the health of his father .
He is home for this short time, and it is so nice, and we had know idea what the year held for us this past year
and then the accident happened and he never left his little sister’s side .
Having him home at this exact time was more important then we could have known.
It’s times like these you realize what a favorite aunt so wisely says is truth, “God’s plans for you are none of your business.” His are always better.
If you know this son, and you know him well . . . he will bring you closer to your faith. . . whatever that faith maybe . . . he will bring you closer.
the crazy thing is, he doesn’t even know he’s doing it.
He’s our Peter.
after this year is said and done. . . it will be hard to see him off. . . but, we will.
His future’s so bright.
and God’s plans for him. . . “are none of my business“. I’m just so very thankful He‘s invited me for the ride.

everyone one of us around the dinner table
peace in this house
